Our White Tara statue is an embodiment of one of Tara’s most popular emanations. White Tara devotees believe she glows with the radiance of 1000 white moons. Additionally, she has 7 eyes which are located – 2 on the face, one on the forehead center, and one on each of her palms and on the soles of her feet. As a result, all her thoughts and actions will be imbued with wisdom and compassion.
This classic White Tara statue sits in full lotus pose on a single lotus pedestal. There are two blossoming lotus flowers one growing over each shoulder. Her right hand holds the stem of one lotus flower between the thumb and index finger. Additionally, this hand is depicting the Varada “gift giving” mudra. Her left hand is depicting the Abhaya mudra which symbolizes protection and fearlessness.
White Tara is also known as “Cintachakra” which is a Sanskrit term for “wish fulfilling wheel”. Our White Tara statue is strongly affiliated with serenity, healing, compassion and long life. Indeed, White Tara is included as one of the three deities of long life in Tibetan Buddhist beliefs.
